1 mom liked this

17 and almost 14 year olds got them when they were 11 and 14. My middle DD is almost 11 and will most likely get one around her 11th birthday as she is in dance and other activities that get out early at times. 9 year old DD has no need for one and will probably get one around 11 or 12. My 17 year old didn't want one until he was 14.

The 3 older ones have them. They got them at 9, 11 and 12. They are now 11, 16 and 17. Never had an issue.

My daughter has had her own cell phone since she was 9 years old. She is now almost 20. No, she didn't have to earn it. I wanted her to able to call me anytime she was at school or at a friends house.

Nope. And he won't until he hits high school, and he will have a track phone or prepaid phone in high school.

No tvs in rooms either. Or tablets, or computers... Not until they can afford the fancy stuff for the selves.

No, my 13 yr old wants one, but we cant afford it. Dhs phone isnt even on right now because we cant afford it. If we COULD afford it, my son would have one, but there would be rules with it.

My DS got his for his 14th birthday. We plan to do that for the younger two as well. I think they need them for high school because of all the extracurricular activities and to talk to their friends.

Sd13 got hers when she was 11. She is in band and softball and they were going to contests and things.

SS14 does not have one.

Yes, when he was 8 so he could call me whenever he wanted, from his biological father's house, which is in a different state.

My kids will not be getting a cell no time soon. They are way to young.
